{Img:Goldwater fact magazine.jpg}}The Goldwater rule was created after the left attacked Barry Goldwater (the Republican Presidential Candidate of 1964). Fact magazine published an article, "The Unconscious of a Conservative: A Special Issue on the Mind of Barry Goldwater" that polled leftist psychologists on whether Barry Goldwater was fit to be president, their their political bias (or professional opinions biased by politics) as facts in a libelous ad that stated 1,189 psychiatrists agree that Goldwater is unfit to be President. Goldwater sued the publishers and won. The American Psychiatric Association's (APA) Principles of Medical Ethics (Section 7) since added that it is unethical for psychiatrists to give a professional opinion about public figures whom they have not examined in person, and from whom they have not obtained consent to discuss their mental health in public statements. But that didn't stop NeverTrumpers from doing the same thing to Trump.

Terms

We can't communicate effectively if we don't agree on what words or terms mean. Cultural Marxists decided that since they uusally can't win through honesty, logic, history and facts, they could win by twisting/perverting meanings (especially in popular culture and colleges), to distort every discussion into a debate on pedantics, or use truthspeak as a litmus test for who is properly indoctrinated/compliant. This section isn't intended as a comprehensive dictionary, but just to stop that gaslighting, by defining what I (and often history/society means or should mean) when using a term. Not what the far left is trying to re-invent terms into.
